a newish to me car

i've been bouncing around with ideas for something to get on a budget.... when i signed up maybe the s10 but that never got back to me... sooooo i found this in our local free classifieds this week.... its a 1966 Sunbeam Minx which looks neat to me and the wife said it was cute and i got it for like 200 bucks, so the price was right... right now i just am going to try to get it cleaned up. it's estimated to be in a field for the past 5-6 yrs but i found the last registration in the glove box of 1980 which is cool, i think im going to try to start with the stock engine but i don't know what it will hold up to. ultimately it will be just a zippy fun car to drive with my family so im not going to drop a v8 in it(i don't think it would fit, you guys might know better) i was think about a built up 2 liter engine eventually, but id like to get it running 1st
sorry about the long spiel action im sure in about a week or so when im ready to jump into working on it ill have tons of questions
